I'm going to skip rehearsal and go straight to gigs without actually attending.

So, it seems that I've been added to a grunge band without my knowledge or consent.    I'm hoping this person simply has me confused with someone else - otherwise I'll have to confront the situation and say no.

Congratulations!   I noticed there aren't any vents - which I like.  Although the vents serve a secondary purpose of holding picks (very convenient) I'd be concerned that something could get spilled into those vents.

@Hubaxe - that's outstanding!  The guitar you built reminds me a little of my old Ibanez S-series 7-string.

I like that Micro Terror and PPC108 cabinet!   I bet the PPC112's will sound amazing.

BTW - that's an amazing setup you've got there.

I guess Iím a bit of a jack-of-all trades as well.   During my young adult phase I also worked at a TV and stereo repair shop - fixing, well, TVs and stereos.  Actually, there were VCRs in the mix as well.  I fixed many blown solid state amplifiers during those years.   Good times!   

After graduating college I moved to the city where I started my new life.   I got into a band within a couple of years of landing, and made many friends.   

I eventually bought a house in 2010- beginning the next phase.   Home repair.   My very first job was fixing the fence that blew over during a storm during my first year in my house.   Lucky for me, my neighbor provided much guidance on rebuilding the fence.    Invaluable!   

As for coding - Iíve done quite a lot of firmware with Microchip mostly using their c compiler (and sometimes assembler).  Iíve done a fair amount of front-end and backend code for webpages - including SQL and mySQL. I like using Python (already installed on macOS!).   Recently, I took a job coding some automated test equipment (ATE) - mainly creating the user interface to control and test product.   

Oh, yeah, how can I forget this - I designed a point to point radio system using Excel for the frequency planning.  This worked extremely well.   I started off using Excelís conditional formatting and quickly moved to their built-in VBA.     I wrote the VBA to perform an exhaustive search for the best frequencies to use with the radios I was designing.   I needed to meet ETSI specifications (stringent) yet keep cost low.    The details are mind numbing at times (why we use computers).   

These days - after work - I like to focus on playing out somewhere and/or listening to new songs and chart the piece only using my own ears - that is, without looking at the internet for the answers (or perhaps not so correct answers).   Stay agile!

I like how the modern bluetooth interfaces requires a step-up transformer - but the old tube interface is transformerless!

I wonder how the original design prevented the DC bias of the output tube from going into the speaker voice coil.   Did the original design employ the use of some type of balanced design (like an H bridge)?   Doesn't seem like it'd be economical to do so.

Aside from the movie Pulp Fiction - that video reminded me of when I worked for a vending company when I was a teenager - fixing video games, jukeboxes, pinballs, cigarette machines and etc.   That was the coolest job - I nearly always had a truck that I brought home with me - pretty much I could joy ride in the truck with my friends (you're always on call) - AND the GAS was free!.   I was livin' the life! 

Hobbies - outside of guitar/music  -  hmmm...  it may have morphed to drinking and talking baby talk to the cats.   =/

I briefly went to 12s on my electric - but stuck with 11s for the first ten years of my electric experience.

If you don't bend much it's not a big deal.   But, in some cases 11s may not be the way to go - I tried learning an Eddie Van Halen Lead once - that's when I realized he's a monster when it comes to bending.  I recall a 2.5 whole step bend at one section.    So, in that scenario - you'd probably break strings with 11s.   I never liked bending much anyway.   

Nuttiness aside - The higher gauge aren't as floppy and sound better to me.   My acoustics are 12s - on the high E. 

Edit: I have 12s on my acoustic - not 11s
